Muscular, tattooed, and bearded, Ace Carney is intimidating as hell and my opposite in every way.
With his piercing gray eyes and gruff demeanor, he reminds me of the wolf shifters from my favorite romance novels.
Unfortunately, this is real life, not fiction. There’s no way one of the NFL’s top linebackers would fall for a klutzy future aerospace engineer—I’m not that lucky.
With graduation only months away, my focus should be on maintaining my grades. Yet, the moments Ace and I spend together prove that below his grumpy exterior lies the heart of a gentle giant.
We’re at different points in our lives. He’s approaching the end of his career and mine’s about to begin.
I shouldn’t let myself fall in love with the linebacker. But falling never felt so good.
